The Tooth About The Tropics

As snow falls on the plains and cold air settles in over much of the Northern world, we’re always wishing we had a longer sailing season, better weather, more sun.  But you know what we don’t have to worry about here in the snowy Nordlands?  The world’s largest lizard and deadliest predator in our dinghy harbors!  Here’s how a massive saltwater croc effected dinghy sailing at Singapore’s National Sailing Center on Monday.

The National Sailing Centre (NSC) has suspended all its water activities after sightings of a crocodile in the waters off East Coast Park on Monday (Nov 6), even as efforts to capture the crocodile are under way. 

A spokesman for the NSC told The Straits Times on Tuesday (Nov 7) that contractors at a construction area next to the NSC saw a crocodile on Monday afternoon.

About 120 sailors were affected when water activities were ceased that day

“The Singapore Sailing Federation informed the National Parks Board immediately and called off all water training immediately,” said the spokesman. “As the safety of the participants are our priority, on-water activities will be ceased until further notice.”

The spokesman said this is the first time a crocodile has been sighted near the sailing centre.

Mr Chia Seng Jiang, group director of parks at NParks, told ST that NParks was alerted on Monday and Tuesday to sightings of a crocodile in the waters near NSC.

The Cost of Greatness?

Ailes, O’ReillyWeinstein, Spacey, CK – the #metoo movement has pushed sexual abuse and harrassment into the sunlight where it belongs, helping millions of women and men around the world finally understand that they are anything but alone.  It’s hit sports as hard as anything else, and it turns out the most successful Olympic team of all time is full of athletes who’d been molested since at least age 13 by their (formerly) highly respected team doctor, Michigan State’s Larry Nassar – who looks like he shops for his clothes, glasses, and general look at ‘Pedophiles R US’.

 

So next time you’re pissed about winter or about how few medals US Sailing wins, just remember: It could be worse. Far worse.

Just a couple of hours to go until we’re treated to some more tight action and crazy conditions on congested Singapore Harbor.  Can American Morgan Larson (Alinghi) continue to keep his cool ahead of back-to-back Extreme Champ Leigh MacMillan (Muscat, the Wave)?  Will Franck Cammas recover from his ‘minor fender bender’ with Aberdeen Asset Management to show what the legendary Frenchman is made of?  Watch 90 minutes of it here at 2 AM Eastern, and don’t blink or you might miss some more NASCAR style fun!

welcome to the extreme sailing series

welcome to the extreme sailing series

Carnage and tight racing isn’t the only good thing about the EXSS in Singapore.  We’re quite partial to the welcoming committee, and this may be the first time we’ve enjoyed anyone wearing captain’s hats in a very long time.  Thanks to one of our pals at the EXSS, who shall remain nameless!  Don’t forget to watch the live action from the final race day above.

Beautiful weather: Check.

Hot Anarchist-owned racing yacht: Check.

Hot Russian ‘dancer’: Check.

We don’t really understand why anyone prints magazines anymore, but if they made more like this one, we might actually buy one.  Okay – maybe not.  Here’s the real story from Anarchist tuf-luf:

“This smokin’ Russian model was in a photo shoot on a media boat near the startline of the IRC fleet at King’s Cup Regatta last month in Thailand and we just happened to cruise past in between race starts just as one of the photogs was banging out some frames.

“Turns out she (the photog – Elena Volkova) works for SEA Yachting magazine and now we’re on the cover of the Jan/Feb issue!

“Good times. Even Mrs Tuffie thought so. Enjoy, you bunch of fackwits!”

Get the full story in the thread, and go see the version of the title song that  made it a worldwide phenomenon.
